Winthrop boys’ tennis 2017 preview


Coach: Kelsey Ouellette (first year)

Class: C; Conference: MVC

Last year’s results: 7-5 (lost in first round)

Returning athletes: Seniors — Brogan Plossay, Garrett Tsouprake, Alec Brown, Ryan Hafford, Alex McCarthy; Sophomores — Beau Brooks, Jared McLaughlin, Sam Lattin.

Key losses: Anthony Owens, Bryce Claypool.

Promising newcomers: Seniors — Nate Cummins, Brandon Baxter.

Season outlook: The Ramblers should be competitive in the MVC this season. They only lost two seniors last year, so returning players will be moving up and playing different roles. The team’s focus this year is on building and strengthening basic tennis skill sets. This group of players has a lot of potential, and Ouellette is excited to see how they progress as a team.
